Elon Musk and Tesla Donate N95 Masks to Columbia University Irving Medical Center

As Tesla CEO Elon Musk promised on Twitter earlier that he would donate 250,000 masks with the N95 protection level to the hospitals with urgent needed. Right after that, USLA Health Hospitals received a truckload of PPEs from Tesla on March 21.

 

 

 

A day later on March 22, UW Medicine also received masks from Tesla and its CEO. 50,000 masks designed to protect the health of medical personnel in the hospital were delivered to Dr. Kristina Adams Waldorf. The doctor was so impressed with this act that he told this story to The Seattle Times.

 

 

 

Recently, Columbia University Irving Medical Center (CUIMC) also received a donation of N-95 masks from Tesla, the shipment flown from San Francisco to John F. Kennedy International Airport.

“We have thousands of doctors, nurses, and support staff who are on the front lines of this pandemic, taking care of patients," said Donna Lynne, DrPH, senior vice president and chief operating officer, CUIMC, and chief executive officer, ColumbiaDoctors. “Tesla's generosity will help them. We can't thank them enough.”
